If canon photographer win a nikon sponsor competition, it would make nikon look bad and the canon photographer would be awkward to recieves a nikon camera as prize :bsmilie:

I think canon marathon do allow Nikon users to take part since it's a competition but since this is a tv reality show, why not just allow a mix of users so as not to limit the number of creative people around. Just feel it's a pity. But again kudos to Nikon for organizing it anyway. And with a Nikon and canon user Mike as one of the judge.

think canon users also can join unless nikon want nps only.
Heard you are given a Nikon for the show, both competition has a D3s around the neck. So will be a big disadvantage to Canon user on technicality part haha if force to use Nikon instead of their own personal cam.

Different cams for each show. I believe they started with D3100, then D300s, then D3s.

I believe it's open to all, but they all were given the same setup for the competition to equalize equipment advantage/disadvantage.... At least that was how they explained.

Anyway, only the selected competitors would be able to tell you if their own setup was not Nikon.;)

Not sure there are similar tv competitions elsewhere in the world and are the rules similar?
Use assigned cams etc and how the show is made on elimination.

Haha I guess we will never know that but a good shot is a good shot. No denying. Just wish it to be more transparent and open that's all.

The tool is not the only thing that makes the picture. There is also one's creativity and one's eye.

Each episode....... everyone is given the SAME model camera and lens combo by Nikon

Each episode is a different camera starting with 3100 and ending with their flagship camera by last episode
